Chemical Sciences in Changing Times
18–21 July 2004, Belgrade, Serbia and Montenegro
The 4th International Conference of the Chemical Societies of the South-Eastern European Countries (ICOSECS 4) will be held 18–21 July 2004, in Belgrade, Serbia and Montenegro. The conference—the theme of which is “Chemical Sciences in Changing Times: Visions, Challenges, and Solutions”—will cover all aspects of pure and applied chemistry, although its focus will be on the three accompanying symposia:
- Advanced Materials: From Fundamentals to Application—Nanostructured materials, biomaterials, ceramics, macromolecules, metals and alloys, composites, coatings and thin films, carbon-based materials, methods for synthesis, and processing of materials.
- The Greening of Chemistry: Pursuit of a Healthy Environment and Safe Food—Renewable or recycled feedstocks, alternative synthetic pathways by catalysis and biocatalysis, photochemistry and biomimetic materials, reduction of energy consumption and release of pollutants, minimization of release of pollutants, reduction of energy consumption, organically grown crops, and agrochemicals.
- Teaching and Understanding Chemistry: New Concepts and Strategies for Changing Times (Dedicated to 150 years of teaching chemistry in Serbia)—Chemical education at the elementary level, high school chemistry, university courses in chemistry, active learning in chemistry, permanent education, the public image of chemistry, and the chemical industry.
Plenary lecturers will include John Fenn (Virginia Commonwealth University, USA), Jean-Marie Lehn, (ISIS-Universite Louis Pasteur, Strasbourg, France), C.N.R. Rao (Centre of Excellence in Chemistry, Bangalore, India), Peter Atkins (University of Oxford, UK), Ronald Breslow, (Columbia University, USA), Egon Matijevic (Clarkson University, USA), K.C. Nikolau (The Scripps Research Institute, USA), Mauirizio Prato (Universita degli Studi di Trieste, Italy), and Ivano Bertini (Universita di Firenze, Italy).
The conference is an event sponsored by both IUPAC and the Federation of European Chemical Societies.
